underlying buts of pressed element in that debate between obama and romney on foreign-policy. i think romney, you know i have read in salon about that debate and one of the things i went back and read was from the speech in virginia where he made the kind of bold a statement on foreign-policy. that is a rough speech. that is the speech where he says you know, we should be doing much more about syria and should be keeping more troops in iraq and doing all this sort of stuff. he keeps coming back to this notion that obama is leading this apology tour, that he doesn't really believe in america. i think that language in 1952 about criticizing the democrats as being wimpy on fighting the fight against communism, there is a direct line. on that i feel very safe and there is also direct line about the use of totalitarianism and socialism on the part of the chastised within the republican party and the tea party language of today. so i do think that there's a lot of kind of in similarities but what is remarkable to me is that you know, i guess what is odd to me is that ms. -- mitt romney cann

was the central underlying but suppressed element in that debate between obama and romney on foreign policy. i think romney -- i read a few -- about that debate and one of the things i went back and read was romney's speech in virginia where he made the most -- the kind of boldest statement on foreign policy. that is a rough speech. people who wanted romney, should read that. that the speech where he said we should be do much more about syria, keeping more troops in iraq, and then it keeps coming back to this notion that obama is leading this appalling -- apology tour and he doesn't believe in america. and i think that language about criticizing the democrats on being wimpy on fighting the fight against communism issue there's a direct line and the use totalitarianism and communism, and the tea party language of today. so i do think that there's a lot of kind of similarities, but what is remarkable to me is that -- what i guess is obvious to me is that mitt romney cannot do what richard nixon did. he can't paint himself as an ordinary guy. he can't good back and say, look at my car a
